2011 Vina Real Gran Reserva which has received 97 points in the 2018 Decanter Wine World Awards. "An intense nose with a whiff of leather, mushroom, vanilla oak and baked damp earth. It’s a fascinating red with juicy red fruit, fresh acidity and a spicy finish that gives real pleasure. Sinewy tannins resolve themselves on the finish in an enjoyable, juicy flourish." - Decanter, decanter.com
